Charlotte Tilbury: A Timeless Success

The success story of Charlotte Tilbury is now internationally recognized. Since its establishment in 2013, the brand founded by the makeup artist has evolved into an empire, reigning atop the beauty and makeup industry as one of the most appreciated and utilized brands. Each new product launch is accompanied by a distinct communication and influencer campaign. Notably, the actor from the successful movie “Barbie,” @ncutigatwa (with 2.5M followers on Instagram), became the face of the new Magic Hydrator Mist. Revealed on TikTok in early June, this seasonal product joined the brand's iconic lipsticks, frequently sold out globally due to social media virality.

This collaboration gained considerable attention and secured a prominent place across all of the brand's social media accounts. On YouTube, a 'Shorts' video garnered over 2K views, presenting the actor's “Get Ready with Me” routine for the film's premiere. Meanwhile, the brand highlighted this exceptional partnership on Instagram through a 'Reel,' amassing over 514K views. The same video posted on TikTok has reached over 83.7K views at the time of writing. Charlotte Tilbury’s striking strength lies in creating omnipresence across its social platforms, leveraging the popularity of a trendy personality.

Chipotle: Masters of TikTok Challenges

With 1.7M followers and 35M likes, Chipotle made a strategic move to invest significantly in TikTok in recent months. Recognizing that over 50% of its customer base constitutes Generation Z, particularly active on the platform, the company capitalized on this trend. Chipotle also discovered that Generation Z placed take-out orders as frequently as millennials but ordered 3 to 4 times a week.

In May 2019, Chipotle launched its inaugural TikTok challenge, #ChipotleLidFlip, during the summer vacation period for its target consumers. To bolster the hashtag's usage and maximize entries, the brand collaborated with Gen Z content creators who were avid Chipotle enthusiasts, including YouTuber David Dobrik (with 18.3M subscribers on YouTube). His TikTok video amassed over 600K likes, 1,700 comments, and over 15K shares within days! The #ChipotleLidFlip challenge garnered participation from hundreds of thousands of users worldwide, attempting the challenge and sharing their attempts with the branded hashtag.

Given the resounding success of this challenge (the hashtag #ChipotleLidFlip now boasting over 328M views), Chipotle swiftly recognized the potential of influencer partnerships. In August 2019, the brand collaborated with Loren Gray (with 49M TikTok followers) for National Lawyer Day, launching another hashtag challenge, #GuacDance, which also gained immense traction. Loren Gray's KOL video received nearly 709K likes and over 5K comments, sparking a viral trend. The campaign accumulated a staggering 500M views, setting a new record as the top-performing brand challenge in the United States. The hashtag has now amassed over 1 billion views. The TikTok challenge resulted in Chipotle serving the largest-ever portion of guacamole, totaling over 800,000 servings
